Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark Printer Thanks for the help now it works for printing but the all in one center will not scan or copy. The scaner just goes click click click with no movement. Scan light comes on but the scan bar does not move. This includes pressing the scan or copy button on the printer. Is it a driver problem or a printer problem. The other thing that is missing is the scan to fax function when i try to invoke it I get A message no faxing software found. The help is great 10X better then lexmark. Sorry it took a wile for me to test the functions and get back to you have some major family problems.

    I loaded XP on the same hardware to see if it was a driver problem or scaner problem. The scan and copy functions work with XP but still not ME 2000. It would appear that the scaner driver are wrong or not part of the file. The printer works fine and that was the most important part. The scan and fax would be nice to have if possiable. I did submitt a complaint to lexmark and to the BBC beacause they advertize that printer and software works with 98/MEon the box and the manual. The only thing I got so far was an offer to refund purchase price less tax ect. Not sure if i should send the information to the attorney generals offices for false advertizing,

If the scanner is clicking than it is a scanner issue. Make sure there is not a lock button on the machine. They sometimes have these for when the printer is being moved. As for the faxing software it would seem that that part didn't not get installed so if you can update it.

My scanned pages are too light.

Try to use the Lexmark All-In-One Center Application on your computer to adjust the darkness of your prints. On your computer, click on Start > Prorgrams > Lexmark 2600 Series folder > select All-In-One Center. From the Copy tab, select "darken" copies.
For printing, Normal or Best mode in the Print Setup properties before sending the print job to the printer for printing.

I went into my computer, clicked on the printer icon and opened it up. Then I was able to scan simply by pressing scan on the icon, It took me thru the Print wizard and I was able to scan without any error message. So now, my printer will print, scan , copy and sort. I am still enjoying the idea of the all in one printer. So, thanks for your offer of help.

I have a lexmark x73 i'been instaling so manytimes on order to make the scaner to work but nothing I would apreciatte if you can give me some tips or help thanks

The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Lexmark X73) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
